How to create a nice environment and feeling while I eat instead of feeling anxious and eating that way?
WholeNAT23 replied to WholeNAT23's topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30Thank you very much, your advice was very useful. I am definately going through proccess of learning to make things easy for myself, and it´s good to be reminded to take it one step at a time. Thank you for your encouragement! Next time there´s a possibility I´ll be out for too long I will either eat sth before leaving the house or take with me a proper snack. By the way, would dried tomatoes with prosciutto or a handful of nuts be a proper snack?
Hey everybody! So I discover this forum now, I am a bit late but I started my first whole 30 a week ago. Why? Just because it felt right and that way I had a few days to prepare and not rush into it, and because on january 28 is my 23rd birthday and finishing whole30 and checking any results seems like a good gift, as well as having taken the first of many steps to bettering my relationship with food. It´s been a week so far and I am doing well. How are you? Let me know about you in the comments, or tell me if you´re also in day 7 by any chance I am from Spain and I don´t think here this is a very popular programm xP Cheers. I am looking for some support or anyone who wants to share their experience over here along with mine, even if we are on different days
Hey everyone, it´s the first time I am here and I am so excited for having this forum for support on my whole30 experience. I am on day 7 and the truth is that it´s been feeling a little lonely. Well, I´d like to ask you for suggestions with the following issue: The thing is, I come from binge eating. This new year 2019 I am letting go of disordered eating of any kind, and I really really really want to change my relationship to food into a healthy, loving and peaceful one, and doing whole30 is the first step of my plan towards achieving that resolution. It has been great so far, and I feel that if I keep doing this till I completely get used to it so much is gonna change. I am making a menu, a mealplan every week and I have promised myself that I will keep making weekly mealplans and sticking to them for the rest of the year. This is challenging my patience, discipline, boredom feeling and also my impulses and anxiety. I wanna get in control of my choices 100%. So I would like to ask you for advice or any suggestions you may have for me to stop cooking and eating with anxiety. Today I snacked and it´s something I don´t wanna do cause binge eating is all about "let me have a little bit of this, a little bit of that". I simply wanna stick to what I plan. Learn to wait for food. Learn to cook patiently, even enjoying it. For example, today I went grocery shopping for the next week, which took me around 3 hours. I bought some grapes and felt like having some to taste their sweetness on the way home. By the time I got home I was moody and it had already been 5 hours since I had had breakfast, and still had to cook my lunch. Pfff, and I needed to tidy up all the groceries before. So I started doing that and ended up eating some hazelnuts I had bought for a snack for some other day I really needed them, I haven´t contained myself. And I knew I was gonna eat lunch soon but I still had to cook it. So while eating those things I was standing, and cooking fast and the kitchen was still kinda messy. I didn´t take it with peace and calm and that made me feel messy too. By the time I got to eat I found myself devouring my lunch, maybe overeating a little bit without feeling myself too much and in a hurry. So do you know any ways in which I can make my eating experience a peaceful, slow and loving one in my relatinship with food? Thank you so much
